Apparently most Havas’ HR staff quit, in NY and Chicago. The saga continues 👀😂. Can anyone from Havas provide updates!!!

I wouldn’t go anywhere near this place until Jason Peterson is gone and leadership has a solid 18 months to figure itself out. You can go do traditional ad work (broadcast and print) poorly at any number of shops for the same pay and with none of the agro bullshit 😂. In all seriousness though, it’s an agency at a crossroads. They want to do nontraditional/bleeding edge work, but continue to land clients that require traditional skillsets. They then staff them poorly, and try to pick up the pieces as they fall. Complicating all of this is JP’s bullshit. Youtube and Instagram videos are not marketing ideas, no matter how loud he shouts about it. If you want to do leading work, would reccomend working at a place that employs at least 1 web developer and/or some kind of technologist. Otherwise, you make print and broadcast. Oh and The Annex is 100% tobacco. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. It’s a study of nothing except how to earn tobacco money without sullying an agency’s reputation. End rant, cannot wait to GTFO of here, lol.

Maybe they used that external agency recruiter contact list to find new jobs.

Most of Chicago’s HR departure was due to the lobby installation. Some of it was just a timing thing. But generally, yeah, it continues to be an unbelievably toxic environment. On the way out myself and have on good authority, plenty of people behind me plotting exits as well.

@havas 2 - what up Dave. Not boring or dull, just biding their time until you drop the new Campbell’s Soup and Lil Xan “Soup Me In The Face” mashup and change the game forever. Maybe you’ll break 250,000 plays on Youtube this time. Waiting....

It must be a tough job for them to try to recruit people for Havas right now. I don’t blame them!

Honestly all agencies are wack af I’ve been to a few there is no perfect place you crazy to think there is. My job has the same level of importance that your does and that = none we are all master manipulators who control minds through copywriting and Art direction none us of are changing lives here we are only taking money from pockets. No real value at all. You can try and disguise it as “equality, saving the world through water” blah blah blah...at the end of the advertising as a whole is a laughing stock. I can pick something out about every last single one of your agencies.

Haven’t experienced any of this in NY. Have a number of really supportive mentors on and off the account I primarily work on.

I’m not saying I’m supportive of all the madness here, but I feel like people outside our agency talk about it more than we do
